The 2018 Annandale CROP Hunger Walk will be Saturday morning, October 20, at Lake Accotink Park. The Annandale CROP Hunger Walk raises funds for Church World Service’s hunger and refugee relief and development programs and for ACCA. Walkers collect donations to CWS from sponsors online or by check or cash. More detail on the 2018 walk will be available in late summer.
Church World Service works with Christian organizations around the world to sponsor programs for hunger, disaster and refugee relief, and sustainable development programs to help improve peoples’ lives. In the U.S., CWS responds to natural disasters and supports refugee resettlement.
The 2017 Annandale CROP Hunger Walk was held on October 14, 2017. Fairfax County Supervisor Penny Gross and CWS staff Roberta Macauley participated in the opening ceremony. A total of 74 volunteers from 12 ACCA churches participated in the walk. Seventeen youth made posters for the 2017 CROP Walk Poster Event. The walk raised a total of $18,421 in funds for Church World Service. CWS returns part of the funds raised by CROP Walks to community efforts to fight hunger and poverty. ACCA received $4,500 from CWS from the 2017 walk.
